Ngeucrik is a Sundanese word that means throwing a net for getting fish. The people below was throwing the net in the middle of a lake. This was found when we were in the trip to Baduy Dalam. The lake was in a village in Baduy Luar.

About The Baduy.

The Baduy, who call themselves Kanekes, are a traditional community living in the western part of the Indonesian province of Banten. Their population of between 5,000 and 8,000 is centered in the Kendeng mountains at an elevation of 300-500 meters above sea level. Their homeland in Banten, Java is contained in just 50 km² of hilly forest area 120 km from Jakarta, Indonesia’s megalopolis of high-rises and fast cars. The Baduy are divided into two sub-groups; the Baduy Dalam (Inner Baduy), and the Baduy Luar (Outer Baduy). No foreigners were allowed to meet the Inner Baduy, though the Outer Baduy do foster some limited contacts with the outside world.
